Dog Bicycle Trailer Review: Track’r Houndabout II
What can I say? I’m a very adventurous dog. Mom believes in taking me with her whenever possible. You can read her post on outdoor activates with your dog. Lots of fun ideas! But I can’t always keep up with everything she does, for as long as she does them.Two years ago, Mom got a
Two years ago, Mom got a Track’r Houndabout II Large Bicycle Trailer for Christmas. Or I should say I got it. This dog bike trailer hooks to Mom’s bike frame in the back, so I can go along on all her bike rides. This dog bike trailer is made of a lightweight, rust-proof aluminum frame. The Track’r Houndabout II features a unique axle design which lowers the cabin for easier access, in addition to an extra-wide wheelbase for greater stability.The dog cabin is made of heavy-duty polyester with a waterproof bottom. The front opening has a zippered, mesh screen layer and a zippered, vinyl layer to block wind and weather. There is a second rear opening which is where I hop in. Inside the dog
The dog cabin is made of heavy-duty polyester with a waterproof bottom. The front opening has a zippered, mesh screen layer and a zippered, vinyl layer to block wind and weather. There is a second rear opening which is where I hop in. Inside the dog bike trailer is a safety leash and removable washable cushion. Mom likes all the pockets so she can store my goodies and water bowl.
I really, really enjoy going for rides in my Track’r Houndabout II Large Bicycle Trailer! Mom and I went for a lot of bike rides when it was cold outside, but no snow. We also ride on mild days, but not when it’s too hot. Mom is a fair weather rider. But I would like to go for more. I lie down, looking out the front and back windows. They are nice and big, and I get to watch the world go by.
Mom said it’s too big for her small car to take on outings besides our neighborhood bike rides. That’s a real bummer because I really would like to go on more adventures in it. Mom even bought the Solvit HoundAbout II Pet Stroller Conversion Kit to turn it into a dog stroller, but she has never put it together. We just use our regular dog stroller- Pet Gear Special Edition Pet Stroller.
Track’r Houndabout II Large Bicycle Trailer is a real hit with me! Mom is glad she asked for it for Christmas, but she doesn’t use it as much as she would like. So if you can do me a favor, tell her to take Dexter The Dog out for more bike rides! I would really appreciate that. Thanks.
Pros: Once assembled, attaches to bike with ease, very roomy, durable, tons of fun for Dexter
Cons: The inside bottom could use a bit more cushion (easily solved with extra bedding), tools required for assembling and in-depth instructions, too large for a small car, an investment at about $200
